So the full list of categories for 2020 would be:
#1    The GC Rider
#2    The Young GC Rider
#3    The Cobbles Rider
#4    The Young Cobbles Rider
#5    The Sprinter
#6    The Young Sprinter
#7    The ITT Specialist
#8    Wrapped in the Flag
#9    The Climber
#10   The Random Eastern European   
#11   The Who? ;)
#12   Mr Breakaway
#13   The Continental Dominator
#14   Mr Loyalty
#15   The Latin American Climber
#16   Straight Out of Juniors
#17   The CX-er
#18   The Trackie   
#19   The Bottle Carrier
#20   The Glue Factory - suggested to drop
#21   The African   
#22   Surname beginning with [?]
#23   The Injured One
#24   The Pretty Boy
#25   The Scandi
#26   The Close But No Cigar
#27   Sleeping With The Enemy
#28   The Fall From Grace Rider WT -> Conti
#29   "Had One Good Season A Few Years Ago..Another One Soon"?
#30   The Next Big Thing™
#31   The Non-Traditional Cycling Nation One
#32   The Zero Point Rider
#33   The Rest of the Budget

As you can see, we're down one category if we drop The Glue Factory. Going through the thread, we've had a.o. the following suggestions:
- The Underachiever
- The 30-Something

Personally, I like the 30-Something as a replacement for the Glue Factory. Yes, it will be a category with a lot of eligible riders - but then it's down to the picker to choose a rider who isn't just >30, but actually has prospects of improving on their 2019 score.
